ABOUT MELLIEHA..... YOUR GATEWAY TO DIVERSITY AND BEAUTY
The beach at Mellieha Bay – Il Ghadira, named for the natural sandbank lying just 100m off the shore - is one of the most popular on Malta. The largest sandy beach on the island, Mellieha offers shallow waters and a vast expanse of smooth golden sands, and the presence of life-guards make it an ideal spot for families with children. Watersports are available on Mellieha Beach, including water-skiing and parasailing, with fun activities such as banana boat rides and pedalos on offer. A good choice of beach bars and restaurants line the beach and some large hotels sit back from the seafront.
The gorgeous Mellieha Bay beach is the longest beach in the area with lovely clean, shallow water and golden sands. Swimmers love it and it is safe for the kids. It does get a bit crowded at weekends. This beach is so nice that the locals use it too. Nearby Golden Bay is delightful too. Mellieha beach features loads of friendly little kiosks that sell cool, fresh local and exotic fruit salads, ice cold drinks and ice creams, and there are places to hire sunbeds and beach umbrellas.
Explore the Town
The town centre of Mellieha is packed with interesting and useful shops, restaurants selling delicious local and international food and friendly cafes with chilled outdoor seating. The town's side streets are pretty, typically Maltese, giving an insight into the lives of the people who live here all year round. Folk sit outside their houses on warm evenings chatting, a good way to meet the locals.
The kids will love this feature of Malta! Popeye Village was originally built as a film set but now it's a magical place for children, with a museum as well as live puppet shows and a funfair.
The Feast of Our Lady of Victories
If you visit between 30th August and 8th September you can join in with the big celebrations for the Feast of our Lady of Victories. One long party covering the whole week, filled with exciting displays of fireworks, live music and folk dancing, local arts and crafts and a spectacular procession.
The Sanctuary of Our Lady of Mellieha
Fancy some history? Our lady of Mellieha church faces onto a really pretty ancient square with a sparkling fountain and trees. This is a little oasis away from the holiday turmoil. Or visit the Parish Church complex complete with wonderful medieval cathedrals clinging to the slopes & the unmissable war shelters!!
There's an ancient painting in Mellieha Sanctuary Cave, of the Madonna and Child. Allegedly, painted in 60AD by St Luke whilst he was shipwrecked here, but more likely a medieval piece of art. All the same it is a pretty thing and well worth the visit if you're an art buff.
Near the apartment there is a wide variety of restaurants catering for even the most conservative of palates. There are those which serve British food, others where you can savior Maltese specialties and a range of international cuisine.
